Photochemical Dynamics of Fullerene Nanoparticles
When the sizes of particles or layers of metals and semiconductors become as small as the nanometer-scale, they show quite attractive properties that are different from bulk materials . The quantum-size effect is one of the important properties of nanostructured materials. Nonlinear optical properties of these materials are also important in applications to photonic devices . Furthermore, the wide surface area of fine particles enhances the efficiencies of solar cells utilizing dye-sensitized TiO2 . Thus, fabrication of nanostructures is an important means of attaining novel properties and is studied extensively in the field of material science.
